Planetary Protocols: Anna Puigjaner
Planetary Protocols är en ny, tvärvetenskaplig programserie med internationella tänkare och yrkesutövare i samtal om arkitektur, design och identitet. I seriens första samtal presenterar Anna Puigjaner, medgrundare av den Barcelona-baserade arkitektbyrån MAIO och vinnare av 2016 Wheelwright Prize, sin forskning om Kitchenless Cities.
There was a time in New York when the house was understood as an open system. It was designed, not as a single entity, but as a set of connected fragments that could change depending on the need. The space was flexible and adaptable on demand, and expanded also by means of collective domestic services and spaces. The kitchen was optional as the rest of the rooms and sometimes it was left apart, kitchenless.
This typology blurred the traditional limits between the public and the private sphere, between the domestic and the urban, and thanks to its flexibility and share-ability was able to shrink radically housekeeping costs, waste and labour. Still nowadays the idea of home is ultimately a cultural construction whose malleable limits go beyond its physicality. A home, and its kitchen, is therefore a diffuse entity.
Samtalet följs av en replik från curator Maria Lind. På engelska.
